Volunteers needed to rake 77 yards
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties has been registering local residents to have their yards raked by volunteers during the annual event, “Day of Caring” which takes place Nov. 3.
To date, 77 yards have registered for this service. Residents from the community that utilize this event are elderly and/or disabled community members who are unable to rake their yards themselves or cannot afford to pay for services. Every year, volunteers help these residents clean up their yards, to prepare their yards for the winter months.
Volunteers are needed to register before Oct. 31.
Breakfast begins at 8 a.m. on Nov. 3 at the Grand Rapids Lion’s Club, 2411 36th St. South, Wisconsin Rapids. At 9 a.m., volunteers will receive their raking assignments and t-shirts. We will also be collecting personal care items for Acorn Apartments, a local apartment building for disabled individuals.
Volunteers need to provide their own rakes, gloves, and transportation. Younger volunteers are strongly encouraged to be supervised by an adult. Homeowners will provide the bags.
